Efficiency is the important thing – avoid duplication – as the city grows infrastructure is required.

The mayor and council are always tasked with making the important decisions regarding spending and tax rate.

Under my leadership, taxes been kept as low as possible. The city’s debt per resident has also gone down each of the three years and this success will ensure that servicing that debt will stay at a minimum and when items come up we will be able to afford those items.
